WHAT

Friends of Women’s Studies and Humanities Research Group invite you to a Distinguished Visitors in Women’s Studies 2015 Feature Event:

Join Zarqa Nawaz Creator of Little Mosque on the Prairie for a screening of her documentary film Me and the Mosque (nfb, 2005).

Me and the Mosque portrays the multiple relationships Canadian Muslim women entertain with Islam’s place of worship, the mosque. Islam is the fastest growing religion in the world. Many are drawn to the religion because of its emphasis on social justice and spiritual equality between the sexes. Yet, many mosques force women to pray behind barriers, separate from men, and some do not even permit women to enter the building. Exploring all sides of the issue, the film examines the space – both physical and social – granted to women in mosques across the country.
